Armando, Marco and the rest of the team at Rich and Oliva have been a pleasure to work with over the last two years.


As an investor, Armando helped me find the best tenants for my property; presenting it with fabulous photography that highlighted its positives.


When it was time to sell, Marco and Riccardo worked with my needs and the market to successfully negotiate the sale. This was done through their professionalism, product knowledge and enthusiasm.


I would especially like to thank Marco for his great communication through the selling process as he went out of his way to ease any concerns I had.


I would not hesitate to recommend Rich and Oliva as a leasing or selling agent for their property.

Hi Marco, Riccardo & Team,


My brother and I wanted to congratulate your firm on the successful sale of our property in Strathfield South. We always knew that putting a property on the market would be tough especially in this unpredictable market and even though we did not sell the home on auction day you untimely sold it for a great price a few weeks after. You worked very hard to secure this sale and we appreciate all efforts placed towards a final exchange. From the beginning we found you to be helpful and you kept us well informed the whole time. So thank you once again,


Sincerely,


Samir & Ishac.

Dear Matthew, I just want to congratulate you and your team on the splendid campaign which you launched and the subsequent result. The price gained is the one I was hoping for, and your expert auctioneer got there with a bit to spare. This will give me a good cushion to keep paying for my upkeep in the retirement village for as long as I live I might have a small holiday sometime soon when the weather warms up, and try to relax. I overheard that you not sleep on the night before auction, and I can tell you that I didn’t either, and nor could I sleep last night either – wound up like a coil spring!


Thanks for all the hard work.


One very happy client,


Chris.

We went to many auctions in the 12 months before we sold our house to get a feel for the market & watch how real estate agents conducted the auctions. We were always impressed by the Rich & Oliva auctions-not only with the results but also for the great entertainment value they gave us. When we decided to sell recently we had no hesitation in contacting Marco from Rich & Oliva. Marco was very helpful, friendly & knowledgeable at all times. Due to the downturn in the market our house didnt reach an acceptable price at auction but Marco was very reassuring & with determination was able to sell our house within 2 weeks. With gratitude to Marco from Val & Pam.

We would like to express our recent satisfaction with the sale of our semi in Dalmar Street Croydon. We engaged Rich & Oliva as out selling agents and found Marco and his whole team quite impressive to deal with, each having small and specific rolls that that all together they do so well and without a fuss.


 


Naturally we were worried about selling in the current market however we felt confident that our home would be well presented and in good hands having seen Rich & Oliva’s track record in our area for many years.


 


The marketing was great and the video presentation looks outstanding, our opens were well attended and the feedback we received constantly kept us fully informed every week of the campaign.


 


Come auction day we had a clear understanding of who was interested and a good guide of what pricing we could expect to achieve.


 


We would like to thank Marco and all the staff again for all your efforts.

We originally met Marco back in 2008 when we were looking to purchase a property. We didn’t purchase from him however he did offer great service and kept in touch with us until we were ready to sell. Marco and the team had achieved great results for semis around Croydon Park and were confident he would achieve a great result if we gave him our property to sell. We were impressed with their marketing strategy, where they initially conducted an off market campaign followed by an extensive on market campaign which resulted in a great price prior to auction. We found that during the campaign Marco kept us informed, was extremely professional and always worked in our best interests. We would highly recommend Marco from Rich & Oliva.

Hi Marco,


We wanted to write a quick thank you note for all your efforts in selling our Holborow Street home.


We felt that when dealing with Marco he was very calm, knowledgeable and professional, he was also very easy to contact during the marketing campaign. There was no hard sell or pressure placed on us during the auction and Marco worked in our best interest. He explained the process thoroughly and was more interested in the best outcome for us and not just making a sale on the day.


Kind Regards, David & Jenny.

Marco and his team put a lot of work into the recent sale (auction) of our home. As a result, we achieved the best possible price, given today’s market. We deeply appreciated his patience with all our questions regarding the auction process itself, so that, in the end we had a clear understanding of what to expect. At no point during the entire proceeding did we feel pressured into anything we were uncomfortable with for which we are very grateful. We highly recommend Marco and his team to anyone looking for a reputable, friendly & professional local agent.

I have been dealing with Rich and Oliva’s Armando Erichello both as a property manager and sales agent for 20 years, renting, buying and now selling my unit.  It has been a very easy journey thanks to his professionalism, knowledge and care during that time.  Armando and the teams’ understanding of all facets of real estate are unsurpassed.  The whole process of selling from beginning to end was fast, smooth and courteous to all party’s needs – a rarity these days.  Nothing is too much trouble and Armando’s easy going nature and flexibility made an emotional experience also a pleasant one.  Their work ethic and service are second to none and this excellent sales result, above the asking price, reflects this.


I can not thank Armando enough and thoroughly recommend this trustworthy family business to anyone.


 


Cheers

We had been familiar with Rich & Oliva as we had observed their sales and had received their magnetic calendars in the mail that we kept on our fridge. When Riccardo sent through his evaluation we thought he was the only agent who saw the property for its true potential and value. Riccardo did not pressure us into making any decisions and we felt comfortable every step of the way. During the marketing campaign Riccardo would let us know the feedback from each open home including the number of buyers that came through the property and what they thought of it. If I was not able to pick up the phone he would leave all the information in my voice mail and we were always kept fully informed. Leading up to the auction day we had realistic expectations from Ricardo’s guidance and did not find it stressful, on the contrary we were very comfortable. We were very happy with the result and would recommend Rich and Oliva to anyone wishing to sell their home.

We had bought our property from Rich & Oliva back in 2013. We received really good service when it came to selling. The agency had a strong local presence and we had no hesitation in choosing Marco for our agent. He remained open and transparent, providing us with a realistic price of what our property was worth and what we were to expect. We were very happy with the marketing campaign set out for the property. Before the property came on the market Marco organised painting, carpeting and cleaning, along with having the property styled. Marco kept us completely informed and on auction day both he and his team conducted a strong auction in which he was able to negotiate a slightly higher price from the highest bidder. We were happy with the result and would recommend Rich & Oliva for anyone wishing to sell their home.

Our neighbours had sold their property with Marco and had had a great experience with him. Upon meeting Marco we were very impressed with his professionalism and knew his extensive local database would be beneficial to the sale of our home. Throughout the marketing campaign we were always kept well informed and Marco discussed the progress of the sale in a transparent and honest manner. Marco secured a great outcome, selling prior to auction, at a price we were very happy with. We have no hesitation recommending Marco to any potential seller or purchaser.

Dear Marco


Wade and I would like to thank you again for all the hard work you and your brother Riccardo put into the sale of our villa.


The advice we received from how to present the villa to and all the feedback letters and calls with our options and even to not sell on auction day showed you had our best interests at hand every step of the way and we didn’t feel pressured at all.


The amount of communication during the whole process was great we always knew where we were at with the progress.


The professionalism shown in this uncertain market and during the negotiating and navigating through contract changes, solicitors and explaining the finer details held ease our minds.


Thank you again for all the efforts involved by all the Rich & Oliva team throughout the sale and we look forward to dealing with you in the future.

Riccardo and Rich and Oliva has once again successfully sold our property. You can count on the team to get a result no matter the type of property and economic environment. Riccardo persisted with our sale and helped us get the best result for our property. The team kept us updated on the offers and negotiation process and was understanding to our needs. They were also supportive to our tenant throughout the process. I thank all the Rich and Oliva team for their support in getting a very good result for us once again. I highly recommend Riccardo and the Rich and Oliva team to help get you the result you want in your property in the Inner West.

I would like to thank Marco Errichiello and his team of brothers for a successful auction that resulted in a pleasing outcome. I chose Rich & Oliva, after interviewing a number of local Real Estate companies, because of their professional manner, years in business and knowledge of the local real estate market.


Marco’s approachable manner and willingness to help was always evident even in the preparation of the property for sale. His verbal feedback from “open for inspections” was prompt and accurate. His advice and direction was always worthwhile. The auction itself was vibrant and well managed.


I would recommend Marco and Rich & Oliva to potential vendors.


Thank you again.

I would like to take the opportunity to  thank  Marco, Stephen and the team at Rich & Oliva  for the successful sale of our house in Marrickville.


 


Having previously tried to sell our property we contacted Marco.   From our initial meeting we felt we were in good hands.  The advice,  informative and honest feedback along with the polite, punctual  and professional manner we received from Marco and the team ensured the  process was stress- free. We could not have asked for better service.


 


I would not hesitate in recommending Marco and the team at Rich & Oliva to any prospective vendor.

Hi Marco,


 


Just wanted to drop you a note to express sincere thanks on behalf of Miranda and I for your handling the sale of our property.


 


As you are aware we had a very bad agent experience with one of the big name companies and it was a sincere welcome to work with you and your team.


 


We appreciated your frankness and the completely professional way you worked on the sale.


 


The marketing was great, hits and visitations high and you and your team were exceptionally  thorough with your communication and follow through.


 


What we loved was that although with market is tough at the moment , you worked through a strategy to result in a sale not a simply formatted process that many of the larger firms seem to adopt.


 


You and Steven make a great team!

The auction day was quite relaxed compared with what we were expecting, Matt did a great job of setting our expectations and explaining the different scenarios to us so it was a smooth process.


 


Rich & Oliva aren’t what you would expect an agent to be, we didn’t expect our agent to communicate so clearly but they gave us lots of feedback through the campaign sending us letters with feedback from interested parties, it was very helpful to have the constant updates. We would recommend Rich & Oliva.

Dear Marco,


 


Alan Skeed here. I am sending you this letter of thanks and appreciation for the excellent and professional service that you and Rich and Oliva provided for my brothers and sister and myself in organising the recent Auction and sale of our house and property at 37 Cheviot Street Ashbury.


 


From my first contact with yourself and Rich and Oliva, I was given all the relevant information that I required in order to make the whole process an enjoyable experience. You explained everything to me in simple terms either in person or on the phone, and then you followed everything up in writing.


 


You gave me a plan from the beginning that explained the entire process from the start of negotiations until the completion of the sale, including open house dates, advertising, costs, the Auction details and any other relevant details that I needed to know. You made yourself available at all times on your mobile, and you answered calls, texts and emails very promptly.


 


I also felt that the long association with the people of Ashbury that you and Rich and Oliva have, and your extensive knowledge of the area was a great asset to have in our favour.


The Auction day was conducted in a very relaxed and professional way, the Auctioneer was superb, and the result of the Auction was everything that we anticipated and more. You were also able to attract many people to the Auction on the day.


 


On behalf of Tony, Anne, Greg and myself, I want to convey our thanks for a job very well done. I highly recommend Rich and Oliva and yourself as the absolute professionals that you have shown yourselves to be. Thanks for the experience.


 


Yours sincerely,


 


Alan Skeed

We have worked with Marco and the team at Rich and Oliva several times, both as sellers and buyers. We have found their service to be truly exceptional and extremely professional. As sellers we have sold a few properties through Rich and Oliva and each time got the result we were looking for, even most recently in a tough sellers market. When we met with Marco to discuss the market, we received and honest opinion and made decision to move forward based on these opinion. On each occasion, the outcome matched the opinion and as sellers we had expected that the work that went into marketing, follow up and ultimately selling was the best in the market. We continue to strongly recommend the personal and professional service provided by the Rich & Oliva team.

Dear Riccardo sorry it has taken us so long to attend to this  but here is Elaine’s commendation .


 


I wish to strongly recommend Rich & Oliva Real Estate and particularly Riccardo Errichiello to any one who is wanting to sell their property. Their attention to detail and assistance has been fabulous, even to helping to clear out unwanted items that I was unable to do. Keeping in contact and up dating me  throughout the whole process. I felt that I was a person that mattered and not just another client with something to sell.

We sold our property through Rich and Oliva because of great past experience. Unfortunately we were selling due to marriage separation, Steve was very kind and warm, explained everything we needed to know and never hesitated to help where he could. (even taking things to the garage on photo day.) Highly recommend Steve McCarthy and can never thank him enough for fighting for the right price and keeping me sane during the process. Would 100% work with Steve again.
